There is always something to fear, so what do you do when you fear?
Fear also has 2 acronyms: Forget Everything And Run or Face Everything And Rise
As most of you know, we’re expecting our first child very soon and with that, comes lots of unknowns and sometimes fears. So, how do you deal with fear?
This is the series of fears that I thought about surrounding birth. At first, there was worry surrounding getting pregnant, then once pregnancy was confirmed, there’s worry around having a miscarriage. After the first trimester when the incidence of miscarriage decreases, you move into your second trimester and you are told to be on the lookout for preterm labour. When you make it through that and to term, you worry about the baby coming late. Then there’s the actual birth process and then everything that comes with having a newborn that you are now responsible for.
Imagine you followed this thought train for the rest of your life. How many fears would you have feared that did not happen? Most of them! You would have wasted so much time worrying about the things that never happened. Also, whenever life throws you something unexpected, all you can do is to adapt and find a way.
Now, if I had decided to think about all these fears on a regular basis, what would the baby inside of me absorb? All those fears. That is a process of how parents pass along some of their fears to their children even before they are born.
We also carry with us, the fears from multiple generations through the thoughts and DNA that is passed down. Scary! There is a solution to this!
You resolve the fear for you and you resolve it for the generations that came before you and those to come after you as well.
